PZF is an acronym for "Produzido na Zona Franca de Manaus". Manaus is an industrial city located in the Brazilian Rainforest. Several series of diecasts made in Manaus have this PZF marking on their bases.

These can be found in a Brazilian made Disney series originally made for Azrak Hamway International. No driver is included and their attachment slot is left open.

Other plastic base plates also use 'Manaus Ind Bras'. One known example of this marking is the Brazilian made Hot Wheels Dune Daddy model.

The PZF marking can also be found on several of the REI castings.
